The best Help on the Way is from DP3, 5-22-77. I dont think it's streamable.

Either that one or 8/13/75 billydlions, which is also unavailable for streaming.

But 9/28/75 will do in a pinch. Best of thoughts for your Karen...

I think 8/13/75 probably the best performance of H>S>F. It's tight and fast and doesn't waste any time. The difference between Garcia's playing in 74 vs. 75 is nothing short of remarkable. They really found a "new music" to put forth and had completely inhabited its sonic landscape, and this show is what that new approach produced. It's a shame they didn't keep up the inventiveness in the years to come.

Those are both good versions as the band was very well rehearsed for those shows. BTW, I've been stuck in 1974 for some time now and find it a great year! If only Help-Slip-Frank were being played in 1974 instead of Loose Lucy and Money Money (One can dream).

Well they did sneak in a couple of Slipknot!s during 1974...

Enjoy '74. I have been studying the September Europe tour over the past several days. But that is a bit of a struggle :(

Cliff, Many Thanks for your E'72 posts. Very well done, a lot of work/time. It shows. Been listening 'on the day'. I am rediscovering an era

9-18-74 is a pretty good show- probably better than DP7, dont you think?

I think I read in Scully's book that there was a lot of coke going around on that tour and it was not the best of times.

I think the Dijon performance is quite a bit better than pretty good :)

DP #7 is fair. The rest of the shows from that tour pretty much suck!
